This is the last race of the night at the Revolution series that Mark Cavendish raced for howies. It was why we made the World Champions tee.

It still creates a slight feeling of disbelief in the office that it actually happened.

And at the end of the clip when he talks about howies team riders leading him out. . . something that may never happen to a tiny brand like us again.

i think Steve Peats first go at the World Championships  was quite some time back, in 1993 if i remember right, a long time ago. He's been runner up four times, enough to break any mans heart and on top of that he's had some rotten stinking luck along the way but this time the jinx slid off him like water over glass.

The whole show is on over on the freecaster website so you can watch the replay there sometime today, it's a nailbiter for sure. In the meantime this is what he said about being in his mid thirties and still having the desire and motivation to keep racing year after year. Also bear in mind it was recorded the same weekend that he just pulled this incredible achievement off.

Congratulations Steve form all of us at howies, it's been a long time coming kid. Here's a little bio below.
